For over a decade now, I’ve been undeclared (as a voter). The only real effect this has is that in May, during the primaries, I’ve only voted on the issues (some years, I’ve just gotten a ballot w/ one issue on it*). I’ve always voted in every election since I was 18; including primaries. This past May, I did have to declare myself for the first time, b/c there was this guy running in the primary, so that he could run for office in November. So, I knew he had to beat the other dude. That meant I would have to declare myself to give him a fighting chance, so that he could do good (not unlike Superman). But alas, he didn’t win the nomination.
I don’t think anyone can really say that they are completely liberal or completely conservative. We live in the shades of grey in between. It’s more a matter of how liberal. or how conservative.
Anyway, I found this quiz that asks “How Liberal or Conservative are You?” I though it was really interesting.

*usually the school levy, which I always vote for, even though sometimes I feel they’re just wasting the money. Well, not sometimes, a lot of the times. They threaten you by saying they’re gonna cut classes or bussing or teaching staff, but then they use the money to give the higher-ups (superintendent or board members). I feel we as adults have a responsibility towards children. Even total strangers’ children. If I pull up next to a car w/ a kid in the front seat & see no seat belt on him, I do roll down my window, honk the horn to get their attention, & tell them that kid needs to have that restraint on him/her. Yes, that crazy lady is me; my dad would yell at me & say that anyone who was willing to not make their kids buckle up musta been some sort of cretin, so he might even just pull out a rifle & shoot me. This was like 12 years ago; now that it’s like the law, you don’t see ppl w/out their seat belts on much. Well, not here anyway. And on the plus side, more ppl have guns. Yea.
